Blue Jays fall again

The Blue Jays suffered a second straight loss to the Angels in Los Angeles after falling 2-1 on Friday night. Toronto is now 34-41 overall and 14-21 on the road. The Blue Jays are averaging 4.47 runs per game this season while allowing 4.89 per contest.

The Blue Jays hand the ball to Marcus Stroman tonight. He is 0-5 through seven starts with a 7.71 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. Stroman has pitched a total of 37.1 innings and has 18 walks with 32 strikeouts.

Angels on a win streak at home

The Angels have won three straight games, all at home, thanks to Friday’s victory. Los Angeles is 41-35 overall and 20-19 at home. The Angels are averaging 4.57 runs per game this season while allowing 4.14 per contest.

The Angels hand the ball over to Jaime Barria this evening. He is starting his 10th game of the season and has a 5-3 record with a 3.57 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Barria has pitched a total of 45.1 innings and has amassed 37 strikeouts with 10 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays have lost 10 of their last 11 road games and four of Stroman’s last five road starts.

Los Angeles

The Angels have won seven of their last eight home games. They also are 7-2 in their last nine games following a win.

Prediction:

Stroman is returning from injury and he has had four of his starts see the Jays score a combined two runs. Barria is getting much better run support, but has had some real flops for starts. Still, I think he will get some hitting to help him today and I think he can hold off the Jays. Los Angeles finally is hitting its stride at home and I expect that to continue this evening.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -135
